Biography

The son of a cinema set designer and the grandson of a well-known painter, Philippe de Broca studied at the Paris Photography and Cinematography School (école Vaugirard), graduating in 1953. He carried out his military service with the service cinématographique des armées (army film service) in Germany and then in Algeria, directing or acting as head cameraman on short films. Greatly affected by the war he witnessed, he vowed to show life in its best light in his future films “because laughter is the best defence against upsets in life”. Back on civvy street, he set off on a journey taking in the length of Africa in Berliet trucks before returning to Paris.
